This smoothie is packed with nutrient dense, power foods! Coconut for immunity because of its anti-everything (fungal, bacterial, viral) properties, jicama for fiber, pineapple for antioxidants and vitamin c and chia seeds for nutrients and omega-3s. I added a scoop of whey for an extra boost of protein and it turned out to be one of the best smoothies! Give it a try!
